Lemon & Cherry

Hi everyone!

There is a weekly nail art challenge run by some ladies on Instagram that I’ve been meaning to participate in for ages. This month I finally decided to give it a shot. No guarantees that I’ll make it through all of the themes for the month as I have a busy month ahead, but I’ll see what I can do.

The first theme was Lemon & Cherry. This was meant as in the colours lemon and cherry but I decided to take it more literally with actual lemons and cherry blossoms. lemon-and-cherry (more…)

Water Marble Wednesday: Woodgrain

Hi everyone!

It’s Water Marble Wednesday and today I have created woodgrain on my nails! I’ve had this idea in my head ever since I did this vertical stripe water marble and it reminded me of woodgrain (even though it was blue). I’d been putting off trying it in brown as I have a whole two brown polishes and I figured there wasn’t much chance that they would happen to marble well. I eventually decided I may as well just try them in the water and to my surprise, both polishes marbled perfectly! Painted Fingertips | Woodgrain Water Marble (more…)

12 Days of Christmas: Freestyle

Hi everyone!

It’s the final day of the 12 Days of Christmas Challenge from Challenge Your Nail Art! I’m so glad to have made it to the end. Today’s nail art is inspired by some recent Christmas decorations nail art from Will Paint Nails For Food. I really love Meghan’s blog and her nails always look beautifully artistic with perfect line work. I couldn’t get mine looking as perfect as hers but I liked my hanging Christmas decorations nonetheless! Painted Fingertips | Christmas decorations (more…)

12 Days of Christmas: Snowmen

Hi everyone!

Today I have another post for the 12 Days of Christmas Challenge hosted by the Facebook Group Challenge Your Nail Art. Today’s theme is snowmen – another wintery one even though it’s summer here! I couldn’t complain though because once I saw a lovely snowman scene by Instagram nail artist @MelissaRose0410 I couldn’t wait to try something similar! Painted Fingertips | Snowman scene (more…)
